Take-Out For Toddlers Catches On In New York City

You want your two-and-a-half year old to eat healthy, interesting meals everyday, but you’re a working mom or dad and just don’t have time to cook a lot. Waddaya do? Toddler take-out!

The New York Post finds more and more parents of young children in the city are having most meals delivered…and they’re nothing like McDonald’s!

  • “Junior’s Fresh” offers the “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom:” organic chicken with curried yogurt, apples and golden raisins on whole-wheat bread for $7.50.
  • “Komi Organics” in Brooklyn offers five lunches and dinners a week for your pre-schooler for a flat fee of $180. They have things like grilled artic char with herbed quinoa.
  • “Mommy’s Yummies” in Long Island City charges $50 for three lunches and three dinners. One of the meals is sweet potato bisque and basil pasta with zucchini.
